The Invisible Other: White Trash In William Faulkner's Absalom, Absalom! And The Hamlet, 2011 Longwood University
The Invisible Other: White Trash In William Faulkner's Absalom, Absalom! And The Hamlet, Bryant Edwards Trihey
Theses, Dissertations & Honors Papers
The idea of a “white soul” and the protection of its purity was prolific during William Faulkner’s adolescence in the late 1800s and early 1900s, which is why he feared the establishment of a hybrid mix of races, especially one that tarnished whiteness. This thesis exams whiteness in Faulkner’s Absalom, Absalom! and The Hamlet. The findings on this thesis indicate that only white trash can fix the problem that is white trash, which means that white trash is not even safe from itself. Faulkner finished Absalom, Absalom! with further avowal of his fear of the tainting of the ...

Biological Inheritance And The Social Order In Late-Victorian Fiction And Science, 2011 The University of Western Ontario
Biological Inheritance And The Social Order In Late-Victorian Fiction And Science, Sherrin Berezowsky
Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository
This dissertation investigates the heightened interest in heredity as a biological inheritance that arises after the publication of Charles Darwin’s On the Origin of Species and how this interest intersects with concerns about class mobility and the shifting social order. Within this framework, this project considers how heredity became a means of organizing and regulating bodies in keeping with what Michel Foucault terms bio-power. It unearths the cultural work within literary and scientific writings as they respond to narratives of self-help and self-improvement by imagining heredity as a means of stabilizing the social order, and by extension the nation ...

The Influence Of Israelite Temple Rites And Early Christian Esoteric Rites On The Development Of Christian Baptism, 2011 Brigham Young University - Provo
The Influence Of Israelite Temple Rites And Early Christian Esoteric Rites On The Development Of Christian Baptism, Ryan T. Wilkins
All Theses and Dissertations
This thesis seeks to answer the question of the origin of some of the most fundamental additions made to early Christian baptism. Christian baptism began in a relatively simple liturgical form, but became, by the fourth century, a much more dramatic set of initiation rituals. Among the added elements to baptism were washing ceremonies in the nude, physical anointing with oil, being marked or signed with the cross on the forehead, and receiving white garments. Scholars have proposed different theories as to the origins of these baptismal rituals. Some claim the elements existed in the New Testament practice of the ...
The Art Of Emptiness: Buddhist Nature In Picture Books Of Miyazawa Kenji's Donguri To Yamaneko (Wildcat And The Acorns), 2011 University of Wollongong
The Art Of Emptiness: Buddhist Nature In Picture Books Of Miyazawa Kenji's Donguri To Yamaneko (Wildcat And The Acorns), Helen Kilpatrick
Miyazawa Kenji (1896-1933), the author of Donguri to Yamaneko , is recognised as one of "the most imaginative spinner[s] of children's stories, of twentieth-century Japan" (Satô xvii). Moreover, Kenji, as he is commonly known, is probably Japan's most renowned Buddhist writer and his work is now taught in schools and universities. He was writing at a time when Japan was undergoing rapid modernisation and much of his work, including Donguri, was created as a protest against the spiritual desolation associated with rampant industrialisation, commodification and consumerism. Donguri should be considered in this context as the story ...
Buddhist Visions Of Transculturalism: Picturing Miyazawa Kenji's 'Yamanashi' (Wild Pear), 2011 University of Wollongong
Buddhist Visions Of Transculturalism: Picturing Miyazawa Kenji's 'Yamanashi' (Wild Pear), Helen Kilpatrick
This paper analyses the interaction between the 1920s narrative of Yamanashi by Miyazawa Kenji and two sets of contemporary accompanying images. Both books challenge centrist ideologies and nationalist Nihonjinron theories of a homogeneous Japan that arose after WorldWar II. Kobayashi Toshiya’s (1985) more representational rendering of the story’s Buddhist significance of co-existence within nature provides the basis for comparison with the minimalist artwork of Kim Tschang Yeul (1984). While Kobayashi’s multiple viewing perspectives demonstrate how a non-Buddhist like fear of death can be transcended in an underwater microcosm, Kim’s non-replicatory rendering of the story extends this ...
Review Keyes, Roger S. 2006. Ehon: The Artist And The Book In Japan., 2011 University of Wollongong
Review Keyes, Roger S. 2006. Ehon: The Artist And The Book In Japan., Helen Kilpatrick
This handsome tome is based on an exhibition of Japanese picture books held by the New York Public Library from October 2006 to February 2007. Despite the more contemporary connotations associated with the term ehon, this is not a catalogue of books for children. The collection is best described as a volume that traces the traditions of Japanese artists’ books. With the inclusion of two more recent works by non-Japanese (American and German) artists, the volume also features international entries that are currently ‘‘contribut[ing] to the living Japanese book tradition’’ (p. 313). Although it excludes neither children’s nor ...
Beyond Dualism: Towards Interculturality In Pictorialisations Of Miyazawa Kenji's 'Snow Crossing' (Yukiwatari), 2011 University of Wollongong
Beyond Dualism: Towards Interculturality In Pictorialisations Of Miyazawa Kenji's 'Snow Crossing' (Yukiwatari), Helen Kilpatrick
Miyazawa Kenji (1896-1933) is one of Japan's most renowned authors and his many children's stories (dowa) represent a Buddho-animist quest for a more integratcd cosmos. In his desire for this kind of holism, Kenji was largely writing against all the forms of scientific rationalism that, by his day, had cntered Japanese consciousness through intellectual thought and new forms of Naturalist literature. (For further discussion of this prevalcnce see, for example, Keene 1984, Chapters 11 & 16). Such rationalist modes of thought formed the foundation for a society that Kenji saw as responsible for many inequalities. Despite, or because of ...

Authenticated Electronic Editions Project: A Progress Report, Graham Barwell, Phillip Berrie, Paul Eggert, Chris Tiffin
In 1991 the Academy of the Humanities established a series, the Academy Editions of Australian Literature, consisting of critical editions in book form of some of the major contributions to Australian literary culture of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The works chosen for inclusion in the series do not currently exist in reliable editions, so the text of each work is freshly edited to be as accurate and reliable as possible. Each edition includes the editor’s introduction, and textual and explanatory notes, while some editions offer background essays by other scholars, maps, chronologies and similar aids for readers ...

Issues In Electronic Scholarly Editions: Has Hypertext Made An Honest Woman Of Us At Last?, Graham Barwell, Phillip Berrie, Paul Eggert, Chris Tiffin
There have been at least three significant attempts in the last fifty years to comprehend what exactly is this text thing that we scholarly editors and textual critics work with. The initial wave was the Greg-Bowers New Bibliography which tried conscientiously to use all surviving witnesses as forensic evidence to reconstruct the author's intention. The text according to this view was ultimately a product of volition, and the task of the textual critic was a recuperative psycho-historico-linguistic one. The second attempt was marked by Continental inclusiveness and semiotic despair at identifying a single stable authoritative version. This despair produced ...
Evangelical Christianity And The Appeal Of The Middle Aaes: The Case Of Bishop Charles Venn Pilcher, 2011 University of Wollongong
Evangelical Christianity And The Appeal Of The Middle Aaes: The Case Of Bishop Charles Venn Pilcher, Graham Barwell, John Kennedy
In recent years in studies of the Weste,n Middle Ages, there has been an increasing interest in medievalism itself, rather than simply in the cultures and their cultural products. I Such interest has not been confined to the European countries, but has extended to others, the United States or Australia, for example, where the teaching of medieval studies has often been based on a sense of a European cultural inheritance. As part of this shift in direction, specific attention has been paid to the medievalism of a variety of enthusiasts, editors, translators, teachers and scholars. Some of the focus ...
Percy Grainger And The Early Collecting Of Polynesian Music, 2011 University of Wollongong
Percy Grainger And The Early Collecting Of Polynesian Music, Graham Barwell
My interest in the Australian musician and composer, Percy Grainger, and his connections with the early collecting of Polynesian music, began when I visited the Australian National Portrait Gallery in Canberra. I saw there a portrait of Grainger painted in oils in 1941 by Ella Ström, Grainger’s wife. The three-quarter length portrait shows Grainger dressed in a short bolero-style jacket of towel-like material with elbow-length sleeves over a blue shirt, and what appears to be a skirt of khaki fabric at the waist and towel material below in a pattern of brown and white reminiscent of Maori design. Grainger ...
Uses Of The Albatross: Threatened Species And Sustainability, 2011 University of Wollongong
Uses Of The Albatross: Threatened Species And Sustainability, Graham Barwell
Since first encounters with albatrosses in the early modern period, western cultures have reacted with amazement and wonder at the birds’ flight, while taking a more pragmatic attitude towards them as creatures whose worth can be measured in their use value. In 19th and early 20th century western discourse the birds featured as objects of sport, as saviours of various kinds – whether as food for hungry sailors or victims of shipwreck in the southern oceans, as messengers, or as lifebuoys – as well as predators, and as objects to be collected for scientific inquiry. In non-western traditions, such as the Maori ...

Authenticating Electronic Editions, Phillip Berrie, Paul Eggert, Chris Tiffin, Graham Barwell
A book is generally seen as a trustworthy carrier of text because, once printed, text cannot be changed without leaving obvious physical evidence. This stability is accompanied by a corresponding inflexibility. Apart from handwritten marginal annotation, there is little augmentation or manipulation available to the user of a printed text. Electronic texts are far more malleable. They can be modified with great ease and speed. This modification may be careful and deliberate (e.g., editing, adding markup for a new scholarly purpose), it may be whimsical or mendacious (e.g., forgery), or it may be accidental (e.g., mistakes made ...
Peer Assessment Of Oral Presentations Using Clickers: The Student Experience, 2011 University of Wollongong
Peer Assessment Of Oral Presentations Using Clickers: The Student Experience, Graham Barwell, Ruth Walker
This paper reports student reactions to the use of a personal response system (clickers) to provide peer assessment. Trials were conducted in three upper level seminar classes in two different subjects in an Arts Faculty, where students were required to give individual in-class presentations as part of their assessable work. Class members assessed the presenters using criteria based on those used by the tutor, but modified to make them appropriate for student use. At the end of the session some students in the trials discussed their experiences in focus groups. The comments of those focus group participants are analysed to ...
Click Or Clique? Using Educational Technology To Address Students' Anxieties About Peer Evaluation, 2011 University of Wollongong
Click Or Clique? Using Educational Technology To Address Students' Anxieties About Peer Evaluation, Ruth Walker, Graham C. Barwell
Peer bias is recognised as a primary factor in negative student perceptions of peer assessment strategies. This study trialled the use of classroom response systems, widely known as clickers, in small seminar classes in order to actively engage students in their subject’s assessment process while providing the anonymity that would lessen the impact of peer pressure. Focus group reflection on the students’ impressions of the peer evaluation process, the use of clickers, and their anxieties about potential peer bias were analysed in the light of the results of teacher and class evaluations of each individual student presentation. The findings ...

Jacinta's "Vista Al Cuarto Estado": The Galley Version, 2011 Butler University
Jacinta's "Vista Al Cuarto Estado": The Galley Version, Linda M. Willem
Linda M. Willem
The galley stag in the production of Galdós's novels provided the author with an opportunity for final revision before his texts went to press. Despite Berkowitz's claims to the contrary, Galdós did make numerous changes in his works prior to their publication. Indeed, no page of Fortunata y Jacinta's galleys is left untouched. Yet, surprisingly little critical attention has been afforded this important stage in the production of Galdós's masterpiece. In 1978 James Whiston pioneered the way for further study in this area by publishing a brief article discussing how minor substitutions and additions to the ...
Moreno-Isla's Unpublished Scene From The "Fortunata Y Jacinta" Galleys, 2011 Butler University
Moreno-Isla's Unpublished Scene From The "Fortunata Y Jacinta" Galleys, Linda M. Willem
Linda M. Willem
In the current Cátedra edition of Fortunata y Jacinta Francisco Caudet provides a valuable service for Galdosian scholars by supplementing the text -- based on the "La Guirnalda" first edition of 1887 -- with footnotes which quote material that was either discarded or changed at the galley stage. Although Caudet acknowledges his inability to record the thousands of galley revisions that Galdós made, he does propose to cite the more important ones. Surprisingly, however, he does not include one of the few scenes from the galleys which was deleted in its entirety. It occurs in Part IV, Chapter 2, Section v, where ...
